When it comes to your bridal attire, we’re all for opting to rock something unconventional. Separates have proven to be a trendy alternative. Solange has made jumpsuits a desirable option. And now it looks like the newest bridal trend on the rise is wedding shorts. We repeat, wedding shorts.


J.Crew just released Laine sequin shorts ($450) which are meant to be sported on your big day. Ultra trendy bridal destination BHLDN also offers a scalloped hem lace romper ($275) suitable for a walk down the aisle.


We’re going to pinpoint style icon Oliva Palermo as the sartorial force behind this wild trend. When the NYC-dweller tied the knot last year, she ditched the formal wedding gown and instead rocked a three-piece Carolina Herrera set that included a sweater, embroidered tulle and of course, a pair of shorts.


Is this trend a little wild? Definitely. But if styled right, this could definitely be an epic look for a laid-back summer bride. If you’re hoping for a more traditional wedding in a church, sequined shorts are going to look pretty out of place. But if you’re headed to a grassy hilltop or a sandy beach to say “I do,” some crisp white shorts would look stunning paired with a braided updo and silky top.

What’s your take on the bridal short trend? Would you wear it? Tell us what you think in the comments below.
